Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of.  You know whatever you do, they'll still be there.  ~Amy Li

I'm so thankful for my sweet sister! Thankfully I can't recall a time when I wanted to "get rid" of her-- she truly is my favorite person. I am so grateful we've been able to spend this past year at college together. Today, we took a break from studying and wrapping the end of the semester assignments to go have lunch off campus. We were being silly and clearly were tired from a long week, so of course we took pictures!

Love her!

Things I love lately

Countdown! App: Let me just tell you... this iPhone application has been my favorite thing throughout my college career. Senior year and I still use it to see how many days are left in the semester! Summer is a coming, friends!

Signs of Spring on Campus: My walk to my class yesterday morning was so pretty. It is no secret that Oklahoma is not one of my favorite places on earth, but I do appreciate the beauty on my small little campus. The green grass and bright colors of plants and trees against the old brick buildings is gorgeous!

Flip Flop Weather...officially: Ok, so I have been wearing flip flops all Winter long, but that is beside the point. The 80 degree day enables me to freely wear my flip flops and not get made fun of for it! I sure do love that I can wear capris and short sleeves now too...even if I did that all Winter too..

Being able to spend this past year with my sister!: I really am so thankful that I've been able to go to school with Kathleen these past few months. I am so proud of her and how well she is doing her first year here at SNU. I'm sure she will not like me very much for posting this picture, but I was able to attend her Honor's Society ceremony on Sunday and I could not be more excited to see where life will take her next! I know she will go on to do great things!

What are you loving these days?

I feel like I say it all the time...

but I am tired... honestly worn out. As the end of the semester draws to a close, last minute projects and assignments are looming above my head. With not sleeping well (last night it was 85 degrees in our dorm room) and getting up early, the hours of being productive in a day don't seem to be nearly enough.

Kathleen and I headed to Panera today after class to study and work on papers in a place where we didn't feel like we needed to wear our swimming suits to keep cool. Plus, it is always nice to get out of the dorm room and spread out at a booth with some yummy treats. Thankfully we had some gift cards that allowed us to eat lunch as well as have coffee and a snack. The plus of studying for way too many hours in an afternoon? Unlimited refills on delicious java! For two coffee addicts, this is good good news!

Thankfully we have both gotten a lot accomplished and three hours later, my productive streak is still in tact!

For a Monday, today hasn't been so bad after all!
